The mistake that Sharon and I both made is we never set any boundaries.  (Ozzy Osbourne)

"To be a man, a boy must see a man."  (J.R. Moehringer)

The challenge of adolescence is to balance the right of the parents to feel they are in charge with the need of the adolescent to gain independence.

Children do not develop on their own - they only develop within relationships.

Setting limits teaches your children valuable skills they will use the rest of their lives. One day, they will report to a job where their ability to follow rules will dictate their success.

Relationships matter:  change comes through forming trusting relationships. People, not programs change people.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

The teenage years require a delicate balance between the young person's need to gain independence, and the parent's need to retain authority.

If you (parents) tend to overreact to your child's misbehaviour - your child learns that he can't trust you. Mom, Dad, stay regulated!

Being a parent of a teenager can cure a person of narcissism.

Behaviour Management in the Classroom

“I go home from school every night exhausted from the constant power struggles!”

“10% of the students in my class cause 90% of the behaviour problems!”

“Managing the children in my class takes as much time and energy as teaching them!”

“Teaching isn’t fun anymore. I don’t know how much longer I can keep doing this!”

This workshop presents proven strategies that replace “misbehaviour” in the classroom with “cooperation” without the need for lecturing, threatening, reasoning, cajoling, yelling, sending them to the office, etc. (3 hours)

Parents' Comments

“We were so naive. We thought our son’s poor behaviour was just a phase he was passing through. Thankfully you led us ‘out of the wilderness'”
